Third year in a row when we visited Patong and also Wait Thai. In fact this year we even chose our hotel based on a convenient location to Wai Thai since we knew that we would eat there almost every day. The food, prices and service is great. You always get a small fruit platter on top of every meal... More

We had takeaway on the beach yesterday and today we ate in the restaurant. We enjoyed pad Thai with prawn, spicy papaya salad, beef with pepper and garlic and an omelette with chicken. Every dish was delicious and very reasonably priced. We also had free entertainment when a fight broke out in the kitchen not once but twice. We will... More

The only negative is I do love Pork, but obviously cant get it in any meals due to their Halal food prep. Small price to pay to get a wide... More

Best restaurant in Patong, the staff where fantastic, the food even better and the view of the ocean the best. Each meal comes with complimentary fruit. The food was very cheap about 2-3 australian dollars for thai food (which i only had). No sickness or illness from here, tried a few other places but they charge a service fee where... More
